Scout Dry Goods & Trade
From the quality of the gently used clothing, shoes and accessories it sells; to its customers, its neighborhood and the world beyond, Scout Dry Goods & Trade in Omaha is truly a business that cares.
In 2006, owner Kelly Newell attended an NBDC workshop where she learned how to write a business plan, create financial projections and find answers to tough business questions. The following year, she worked with NBDC consultants to adjust her financial projections, resulting in a loan being approved. Because of this, Scout opened its doors in 2008.
Today, Scout employs six people and has an ongoing internship program. Newell says a second store is in the works.
